Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Stumbled on this bar and called in for “one” Ended up staying hours - the best guys behind the bar (Matt & Tim - definitely an asset to the bar although manager Ben didn’t seem to think so! 😂)and they had a brilliant group on...- The James Brothers. They were incredible!!! Got everyone singing, dancing etc and I would love to see them again. A fabulous set up would definitely recommend for a Sunday afternoon!More

Popped In here for a drink on the 16th of September. Nice bar/ pub with a grand set of lads behind the counter. Both of whom were very knowledgeable and helpful when it came to suggestions regarding where to go for drinks around the town....Looks like a good live music venue too with things like Northern Soul nights etc.More

Never had a problem with service in this bar and it’s ideal for the town centre after shopping or whatever. Great to sit out and people watch if the weather is good. Coffee and cake deal is great value. Live music regularly and available for...functions upstairsMore

A group of us visited the bar and felt extreme unwelcome! We were the only group of people in there and felt judged the whole time as we were being stared at and talked about. Would not recommend going here at all, the pub was...empty before we arrived….says it all!! Support others!More

We had a friends birthday evening planned for this bar so while in town earlier in the week (Monday) popped in for lunch, the service was excellent very helpful chatty staff food was good as was the coffee. The evening event this place comes alive...Sunday evening a great singer got the place singing although it’s small here it has a great atmosphere service is quick at the bar and great staff. The only thing that was a minor issue is the gents is very small so you might have to wait to go.More

Always a nice atmosphere and great service. Plenty of music and entertainment on offer. Shame building not bigger because I’m sure more people would like to get in and enjoy the venue

We were staying in shrewsbury & popped into Ashleys for a drink and possibly crisps as getting peckish. I am coeliac so then amazed to see the options of GF Paninis! I had pastrami, gherkin & US mustard. Very nice & the barman was very...knowledgable about GF (even described how my tortillas were GF but not my husbands). A lovely little bar & very friendly staff.More

With only 8 people in the cafe, the noise level felt as if we were surrounded by 20 people. We politely asked if there is a drinks menu and the bartender told us there is none and we just ask for what we want and...they tell us if they have it. We proceeded to ask for a double rum with coke and a glass of wine. It totalled over 14 pounds. In hindsight we should have asked for the receipt but the bartender already looked as if she didnt want us in the cafe. We later saw a menu on another table and looked at it only to see the drinks and prices were displayed. Why lie? Why be defensive? Looked very promising and the interior décor was lovely and cosy. Shame we had such a bad first encounter, even if it may be just a misunderstanding.More

This is a pleasant little cafe in the centre of town. They do some great teas and coffees and if you're in at lunchtime, try one of their home-made pies, they're lovely.
